Lady Liberty to Be Feted at 125th Birthday Party

Friday, 28 Oct 2011 06:38 AM

NEW YORK — Lady Liberty is getting a high-tech uplift for her 125th birthday: Internet-connected cameras on her torch that will let viewers gaze out at New York Harbor or see visitors on the grounds below.

The "lighting" of the so-called torch cams is one of many events planned for Friday's ceremony commemorating the Statue of Liberty's dedication on Oct 28, 1886.

The ceremony caps a week of events centered around the historic date, including the debut of a major museum exhibition about poet Emma Lazarus, who helped bring the monument renown as the "Mother of Exiles."

The day also will be marked by a naturalization ceremony, water flotilla and a spectacular 12-minute Macy's Fireworks display choreographed to patriotic music.
